I bought it of UK ebay pre weathered.... Actually I bought it to restore  but started looking at it and felt it had a good even patina all over and was complete enough I thought maybe I could rat rod it and have it look  right...  Not for everyone I know, and frankly I could easily pull it apart and restore it correctly since I haven't changed anything.  It's a great use for all those too rusty to re-use trim parts!  And after working over the motor (it was stuck when I got it) it runs like a champ and pretty smooth too.  Biggest problem now is locating a matching patina 263 tender to go with it.

Now to the point of how do you keep patina from going further?  That I do not know.  Will have to research some Jalopy Journal threads I guess.  Also don't like the red paint the PO put in the sides of the boiler  need to remove that.
